Join us for the launch of Elizabeth Hay’s All Things Consoled: A Daughter’s Memoir, a poignant, complex and hugely resonant account of the shift she experienced from being her parents’ daughter to being their guardian and caregiver.

In this startlingly beautiful memoir, Elizabeth Hay offers insight with brutal candour and irresistible wit into the exquisite agony of a family’s dynamics; these include sibling rivalries, miscommunications that spur decades of resentment, and genuine love and devotion. She reaches a deep understanding of the most unforgettable characters she will ever know, the vivid giants who were her parents.
